Parapat, Friday, December 13, 2019 – Regal Springs Indonesia is pleased to announce that its significant investment in responsible aquaculture in the lake has yielded promising results through the Pilot Project of the Floating Net Cage (KJA) Recycling System in Lake Toba. Regal Springs Indonesia launched the Total Sustainability Program, KAMI PEDULI, in June 2019 in Medan, marking the first comprehensive program in the field of aquaculture and tilapia farming associated with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
The KJA Recycling System is one of the key investment commitments of the Regal Springs Indonesia’s KAMI PEDULI Program and has shown remarkable results, with all the digested fish feed accumulating and being extracted from the bottom of the KJA. “The performance of the KJA Recycling System is highly encouraging. Large bags have been installed at the bottom of the KJA to collect the digested feed, which is then pumped into a storage tank on a ship. The digested material is then filtered to separate the water content and transported to the surface to be recycled into fertilizer for agriculture,” said Juan Carlos, President Director of Regal Springs Indonesia, during his address to the media at the workshop in Parapat on Friday (13/12).
“We are currently developing additional solutions to optimize this recycling system to achieve the most efficient performance in the future,” Juan Carlos explained. In addition to the installation of the KJA recycling system, Regal Springs Indonesia has also implemented four advanced, automated feeding devices to enhance the efficiency of fish feeding in the KJA. “We are continuously assessing the effectiveness of both these important initiatives, which are primarily aimed at improving the performance of our responsible aquaculture activities,” he added.
Regal Springs Indonesia is a responsible aquaculture and processing company headquartered in Medan. All the business efforts of the KAMI PEDULI program by Regal Springs Indonesia are directed towards producing a range of Naturally Better Tilapia products with the highest quality for the domestic and export markets. Regal Springs Indonesia operates in North Sumatra and Central Java and employs around 4,000 employees, mostly recruited from the communities surrounding its operations.
